Cigarette & Tobacco Manufacturing in the US

Over the past five years, the Cigarette and Tobacco Manufacturing industry persevered despite increasingly challenging operating conditions and intense scrutiny from both the government and the public. Cigarette use has declined steadily in recent decades, but industry operators have been able to slightly offset declining cigarette sales through products like e-cigarettes and other smokeless tobacco. Furthermore, the industry has maintained high profit due to continued consolidation of its largest players. As cigarette smoking continues to decrease over the next five years, these companies will continue to shift their focus to e-cigarettes, which are perceived to have fewer health risks than traditional tobacco products and have become a fast-growing industry product segment.

Operators in this industry manufacture cigarettes, cigars, loose pipe tobacco, smokeless (i.e. chewing) tobacco and e-cigarettes. Tobacco manufacturers acquire raw materials from tobacco growers, paper and fiber manufacturers, tobacco stemmers and tobacco redryers and process these into ready-to-use products sold to wholesalers and retailers.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
